Special Academic Programs and Preregistration

This section is devoted to application, preregistration, and placement procedures that take place before the fall term begins. Some programs have special application procedures with deadlines during the summer or in the fall before classes start. Others have placement examinations or a preregistration process that take place during Freshman Orientation. Details are available through the links below; additional information will be published in the Calendar for the Opening Days of College in June.

Information about advising, Yale's academic philosophy, and the distributional requirements will be available on this site in mid-May. By considering matters in a broader context, you will be better prepared to decide whether applying for any of the special academic programs makes good sense for you.
